BRORA Rangers are back in action in the Highland League on Saturday when they are scheduled to welcome Formartine United at Dudgeon Park.

The Cattachs will look to continue their good form following their 2-1 win over Nairn County on Wednesday night.

Brora Rangers took the lead 10 minutes before half time when Ali Sutherland slipped in a pass for Kyle Macleod to run on to.

He then kept his composure when one on one with Nairn goalkeeper Dylan Maclean and fired a drive into the net.

However, Nairn County came back and equalised midway through the second half.

The visitors’ goal came from a corner kick when Matthew Strachan whipped the ball into the box to find Calum Maclean.

His header beat goalkeeper Logan Ross to make it 1-1.

The game looked to be heading towards a draw when Brora managed to find a late winner.

It came in spectacular fashion when James Wallace managed to lob the ball over Maclean in the 89th minute.

Brora held on to their lead in injury time to secure three points.

The win moved Brora Rangers up to sixth place in the league on 49 points.

They are 14 points behind league leaders Brechin City but have two games in hand. Brora Rangers have 10 matches remaining this season with the season still scheduled to finish by Saturday, April 13.

Elsewhere in the Highland League on Saturday, league leaders Brechin City are set to travel to Inverness to face Clachnacuddin.

Banks O’Dee face Forres Mechanics, Buckie Thistle take on Inverurie Locos, Deveronvale face Strathspey Thistle, Huntly face Wick Academy, Keith take on Lossiemouth. Nairn face Fraserburgh and Rothes take on Turriff.
